ALL SYSTEMS... go
22 January – 27 February 2016
Dance & Poetry: Wednesday 17 February, 6.30 – 8.00pm
ALL SYSTEMS…go is a group exhibition featuring artists’ films by leading international artists Liam Gillick & Anton Vidokle, esteemed film-maker Miranda Pennell and recent Glasgow School of Art MFA graduate Dominic Watson.
Taken from the US Apollo missions the title has since entered everyday use and conveys the implication of an irreversible act. Once ‘all Systems go’ flashes up there is no escape from its consequences and there is no turning back. The three works presented in the exhibition hollow out moments in the unstoppable systems which underscore the inescapable conditions of contemporary power discourse. Enabling the discursive and the improbable, the compromise and the negotiation as disruptive practices, the featured works enter into the hardwired trajectories pre-loaded into the systems propelling all aspects of our world.
